Is This the Straw That Breaks Obama’s Legacy?

Recently I found an article on Google titled, “1,063 Documented Examples of Barack Obama’s Lying, Law breaking, Corruption, Cronyism, Hypocrisy, Waste, Etc.” written by Tim Brown on FREEDOM OUTPOST. I wondered how a person could have done all of these things and not be held accountable by the American people?

How was it that no matter what Obama did, he only got credit for the good stuff, little as it was. He never received or took any of the blame for the bad stuff. Much has been written about the President’s desire to protect his legacy. The story I’m about to tell you could be the last straw, or will it be, like the more than 1,000 times before that these points will not stick to his legacy? I will warn you in advance that this story has a great number of tentacles that brings in some of the most powerful people in Washington. At the end of this tale, you may feel like you need a shower, but I’m not sure that it will restore your hope.

October 26, 2016, WikiLeaks released emails that clearly indicate Barack Obama knew of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, before he told the American people that he heard about it in a news story, just like everyone else. President Obama stated unequivocally he had no knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State. During an appearance on 60 Minutes last October, the President didn’t parse words. He didn’t issue a non-denial, denial. He flat out said “No.” when asked if he knew of her server. You can see for yourself by going to the YouTube link:

Below are two specific e-mails that address the issue of what the President did know and when he knew it:

President Obama clearly knew that Mrs. Clinton had an unsecured server because his communications with her were under a pseudonym, not POTUS. You can see in the first email that Cheryl Mills clearly indicates the President holds emails from Mrs. Clinton that are not marked State.Gov.

So why is this important? Isn’t it just another lie? Is it possible that the President may have committed an impeachable act? It is also very possible that the head of the FBI and the Justice Department violated their oaths of office. Here we go: officials in the White House declared that the White House is no longer going to comply with the Freedom of Information Act. This declaration was made on March 16, 2015. Now look at the March 7, 2015 date in the Cheryl Mills e-mail indicating there is a problem.

Why is this important? If the President admits that he was exchanging unsecured e-mails with Clinton, he has lied to the American people. We don’t know the content of the e-mails, but we can guess they weren’t about her yoga classes. Clinton told us that she never sent or received classified information. Was the President’s communication with Mrs. Clinton classified information on her private server? Did the President comply with the Federal Records Act in preserving these e-mails? If he didn’t preserve them, he committed a felony.

Now we move to the FBI investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s e-mails to see if she broke any laws. FBI Director Comey reported that she was sloppy and did not take care when handling classified e-mails. Based on his review, he did not recommend a grand jury to review the evidence, as he could find no intent to mishandle Federal Records. Why? Many of us were surprised at his recommendation, but I believe he had no other choice. If he were to recommend a grand jury to investigate the actions of Mrs. Clinton, then there was a possibility that the inquiry could not be controlled and the evidence would lead directly to the President. So in order to protect the President, Hillary got a ‘Get out of jail free card.’ No discussion of this subject would be complete without Bill Clinton being involved. Before Comey makes his announcement about Hillary, Bill meets the Attorney General of the United States in her plane on the tarmac in Phoenix. Lynch previously in 1999 was appointed by Clinton as the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. I have no doubt that with this unplanned visit, Lynch was aware of the risk to the President should a Grand Jury be called.

One other twist to our story: the number two person in the FBI e-mail investigation was Andrew McCabe. His wife Jill received $675,000 from friends of Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe for her campaign to run for the Virginia statehouse. McAuliffe is a long time friend of Bill and Hillary. McCabe did not recuse himself from the Hillary e-mail investigation, which I believe he should have, if for no other reason than optics. He was another gatekeeper to protect the President’s legacy.

Lying is not something new to Obama or Clinton, but now we have what I believe to be a cover-up of a Federal crime. I believe Cheryl Mills as a lawyer knew this would be a serious problem for the President and Mrs. Clinton, and if she could convince the White House and the President to suspend the FOIA, it would be his best protection against impeachment and the protection of his legacy.

There is not enough time left in his term to impeach President Obama, and if Hillary wins the election, she will not be prosecuted for her gross mis-management of her communications. In conclusion, I have a few questions for Mr. Trump if he wins, “Will you let it go, or will you endeavor to find the truth for the American people about the corruption in Washington? Will you endanger the legacy of Mr. Obama in trying to, as you say, ‘Drain the Swamp?’”
